Hezbollah claimed responsibility this evening (Saturday night) for sending the drones into Israeli naval territory and announced that "the message to Israel has been conveyed.
" "Different in the direction of the disputed area near a shark field to carry out an intelligence mission."
"According to Hezbollah's press release, the UAVs have completed their mission and the message has arrived."
The group is named after two activists in the pro-Iranian terrorist organization.
The launch of the drones at Shark Field comes after Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah spoke last month and threatened that his organization could prevent Israel from producing oil and gas from the disputed maritime area with Lebanon. Nasrallah also called on Energian to withdraw the ship.
The arrival of a shark rig in the field last month led Lebanon to invite US mediator Amos Hochstein to resume indirect negotiations on the maritime border. 23 (border at a more southern angle than the Israeli position), added to a section in the Kana field, a potential area for finding gas.
Meanwhile, Amos Hochstein visited Israel and discussed the issue with senior officials.
Lebanon is in an unprecedented economic, political and energetic crisis.
In May, parliamentary elections were held in which none of the camps obtained a majority to form a separate government.
Accordingly, Najib Mikati close to Hezbollah, who was given the mandate to form a government, has not yet been able to form a government.
On Friday, US Ambassador to Lebanon Dorothy Shai noted that progress had been made in an agreement that would exclude Egypt and Jordan from Caesar's law to ensure gas supplies to Lebanon through a pipeline from Syria.
The ambassador's meetings with the Lebanese president and other senior officials in the country also dealt with Amos Hochstein's contacts with the Israelis on the drawing of the maritime border.
